Peach Melba Nails and exciting news...


The Peach Melba (French: pĂȘche Melba  is a classic dessert, invented in 1892 or 1893 by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London to honour the Australian soprano, Nellie Melba.[1] It combines two favourite summer fruits: peaches and raspberry sauce accompanying vanilla ice cream. (source: wikipedia)


Peach Melba is also the name of a gorgeous shade (no.72) of peach polish by BeautyUK (source: liloopedia). Many pale or pastel polishes tend to be streaky or patchy. Not with this one. Application of peach melba was, as per usual a doddle and a pleasure.  The overdose of pictures will give you a pretty good clue on how much I have enjoyed this polish :P

My pictures show 3 coats but some of you might prefer to put 4 coats. (see close up at the bottom of this post)

I got a little bit fruity and wanted to pose with my beloved mango butter.

Then I got carried away and tried a little bit of  nail art. Oh dear. Well it was fun to play.

I've placed a cheeky little order myself today. If you're good, I might blog about it next week, state of my nails allowing it of course.  Looking for inspiration on what to buy at BeautyUK? this might tempt you :)

Looks gorgeous, I think it's pretty similar to Barry M's Peach Melba though, and I don't need both. I might want them, but I don't need them...

Love love loveeee. I have the non-pro similar peachy colour? I dunno if the name is the same....

Superdrug bus will be in Stafford tomorrow. Will be going with my SLR, hopefully I won't be too chicken to use it. :D Also I placed an order with BeautyUK too, thus the recent FOTD with the Soho palette using their blush too. Hehe.

Such a lovely colour, looks more pink than Barry M's polish of the same name. Aaaw, I missed the beauty bus when it was in town :( Didn't even know about this!

Heya sorry for taking ages to reply.

I want to take part but it will have to wait until I actually own a sleek palette. Not even joking here, I honestly don't own one :0

God im such a fail haha.

Im sure your sleek feature will still be going when I finally get one. Well it better still be going coz I love it.

I love that colour! You have gorgeous hands!

Jade. said...

this is such a pretty colour! not sure it'd suit me though, I don't think I can do 'pastels' The barry M pink one looked horrendous on my nails!

xmisslorix said...

mmm I love peach melba, both the dessert and the polish... I sadly have neither, I do have special K red berries and peach and apricot, I think I will mix them now and eat it with my eyes closed to see if I can pretend its a delicious dessert... again sadly... probably won't :'( x

Stina said...

Oh I do love that colour, I have never tried any of their nail polishes would you believe?

That's the kind of bus I'm going to have at my wedding. Hopefully it won't say 'Superdrug' across it he he!
